Coming to American is simply one of the best movies ever made. Even 31 years after its original release, it still set a standard that most modern movies cannot attain. Milwaukee Bucks superstar forward and now MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo has great taste because this is one of his favorite movies and to pay homage to that, Nike and Paramount Pictures have collaborated on this version of his first signature shoe, the Nike Zoom Freak 1.
It features a leopard print upper, similar to the shawl worn by the heir to the Zamundan throne, Prince Akeem, played by Eddie Murphy. On the furry tongue features “Coming to America” in gold lettering.
The white midsole features a gold swoosh and the white outsole features translucent sections with gold flakes. The package is completed by a special metallic gold box, a special card that shows Giannis depicted as Prince Akeem and the flower petals like those that the rose bearers threw.
The “Coming to America” Nike Zoom Freak 1 and it’s matching collection are scheduled to release August 2 at nike.com and select retail establishments.
